Canadian court documents show that Ms. Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Huawei Group, China, who was arrested in Vancouver last week, held up to 7 passports, including 4 Chinese passports and three passports.

`Over the past 11 years, Ms. Meng has been issued no less than 7 different passports from both China and Hong Kong,` a letter sent from the US Department of Justice to Canada read, warning about the risk that Huawei executives could abandon

A spokesperson for the Hong Kong Immigration Department declined to comment on individual cases but confirmed that passport holders of the special zone can only possess one valid passport at each issuance.

`Cross-linking a Hong Kong passport means using both the old and new passport at the same time to take advantage of the valid visa on the old passport, but the old passport itself will still be canceled,` the spokesperson said.

Hong Kong legal experts and politicians question why Ms. Meng can own so many Hong Kong passports.

Law expert at the University of Hong Kong Eric Cheung Tat-ming noted that all three of Meng’s passports begin with the symbol `KJ`, indicating that they were issued in quick succession and that she used up many passports.

Manh Van Chu, 46 years old, is the daughter of Huawei founder Nham Chinh Phi and is considered the top candidate to take over the corporation from her father.

The Canadian Ministry of Justice announced that Ms. Meng was arrested on December 1 in Vancouver city at the request of the United States.
